Raksura novellas!

Two Raksura novellasare just about to hit the shelves! Yay! Just thought I’d let you all know that as a public service.

Martha Wells has a very brief description of each at the link.

Me, I think . . . I think maybe I would rather get the e-copies? But then, maybe not. The two-novella paperback is supposed to include a short story or two. That would be a reason to pick up physical copies. Plus, I have the original trilogy in paper.

You know, now that I think of it, I would really like to re-read the Raksura trilogy. I think when the novellas come out would be a good time for that.

Oh, and here’s a post about Being Left Wanting More, where Martha Wells has a nominee for an author she really wanted more from. I totally agree with her choice of Janet Kagan. Mine, if I were going to pick ONE series, I really wish Doris Egan had been able to go on with the GATE OF IVORY series. For a second choice, fighting it out for the top spot, I would LOVE to have seen more books by Jacqueline Lichtenberg (writing as Daniel Kerns) in the HERO / BORDER DISPUTE world. I am glad to see those books available on Kindle, but I really want to see a third and fourth in that series.

Alas, I doubt either author will ever go on with those two series. Though with self-publishing and ebooks, who knows?

Has there ever in the history of the world been a series you loved where you did NOT want more? I’m just wondering whether it’s possible for a series to feel so complete you don’t want another book in it. I don’t think that’s ever happened to me.

    The author I want more from is Lorna Freeman.

    Part of me would love to see what happens next in your Griffin Mage world, but it was a truly satisfying trilogy, and I’m good with how it ended.

    Thank you! I don’t have any idea what I could possibly do for an encore, so I think I’m done with that world — but I’m really happy that people feel that way.

    I agree with all 3 of your choices and add one more: Rosemary Kirstein, who I truly hope gets through her cancer treatment successfully.
